Twin Tail Pipes for 20D?

Hi everyone, I am awaiting delivery of my X3 20D M sport tomorrow. It is a 6 month old car with 4000 miles, so pretty new. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has had their single exhaust replaced with the BMW twin tail pipe exhaust? If so, any details as to whether it sounds any different to the single exhaust?

Thanks all!

Ian

I've never heard of this being done, I would imagine it would require a new system or cutting the existing end section off. Either way it would be pretty drastic and expensive for very little difference. Mind you it would improve the look somewhat and give it a more sporty appearance.

These are available on the BMW website. Look at accessories for the X3.
They cost 239.

It is on the BMW web site that I saw it as an X3 accessory. I expect the fitting cost will double the overall price, but it would look very nice!

Hi Greg, no, although I have seen those pipes advertised. BMW have an option for fitting the twin tail pipe like the 6 cylinder models on the 4 cylinder. I am going to get a cost from the dealer when I next visit, but I would like to know if anyone else has had the pipes fitted?
